I don't recall seeing their newsletter but I did run across the announcement about their acquisition of TheStreet, Inc. on one of the financial news sites I was going through. The acquisition sounded like it made sense for Maven and I didn't see anything to make me feel that the deal would have any negative effects for us on HubPages.
If they are doing so great, why is their stock a penny stock (worth less than a dollar per share)?

Yes I saw it and blundered into a heroic dose of management-speak.
"Their addition (of TheStreet) to Maven’s premium media coalition highlights the strategic momentum we're building ..." Can you build strategic momentum? I suppose so, but I wouldn't know how to go about it.
Further on, there's "our portfolio of major media brands and nine-figure user scale." I wonder what kind of scale that might be. Anybody got any idea? Anybody?
This is just speculation, but I do believe Maven does more than sales and marketing of ads. They also host and maintain websites. In other words, they take over the job as webmasters. Maintaining a website is a labor intensive, expensive, pain in the royal neck. Name brands are more than happy to hand over that whole mess to someone else. Looks like Maven is that someone else who does a good job at a reasonable price.

Just heard Maven acquired Say Media. After a huge decline in stock value of MVEN last week, closed at 0.50 per share, what is going on with new acquisition?
